1990 Toyota 4x4 heater resister location?

Heater blower only works on high which means the resister has gone and it defaults to high only and I have a new resister but cannot locate old one.My Haynes manual says it is under the heater control on dash, but, it isn't.The dealership says it is under blower motor cover, but, it isn't.I'm not going too far with the dash apart.Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks. Guy C.

As it turns out, the dealership sent me the wrong part so there is no wonder why I couldn't find it.D'oh! They sent me the heater relay switch by mistake and of course they look nothing alike.I would like thank you for your help and will remove the post so as not to cause any grief for anyone.Thanks again.

My heater only works on high

If you mean the fan only runs on high speed, then you need to replace the heater blower resistor. It is usually located on the heater box, close to the blower motor.

  • The blower motor does not operate/does not operate correctly
  • Open fuse.
  • Tripped circuit breaker.
  • Circuitry open/shorted.
  • Heater blower motor switch (18578).
  • Heater blower motor switch resistor (18591).
  • Blower motor relay.

Heater on 1990 Toyota Camry mysteriously quits working after about 5 minutes of operation. I have checked the blower motor and the switch and they work fine.

If you mean the blower stops, make sure you have access to the blower. Turn on heater when blower stops check to make sure it still has power which I think it will. This will tell you that the blower motor is going bad and shutting down when it is warmed up. To repair just replace the blower motor.

If you are looking for the fan blower resistor, it is located behind the glove box. No tools need to get to it and a nut driver to remove the 2 screws to replace it. A 20$ part.
